Exploring Avebury’s monuments, landscape and waterscape
Why was Avebury built where it is? With a stunning slideshow, Steve takes us on virtual tour of the Avebury area, exploring the relationship between the monuments and the natural features that influenced their siting. Steve’s many surprising discoveries include a network of previously unknown warm springs that are integral to Silbury and other monuments. The springs, and natural outcrops of huge sarsen stones, made this a ‘special place’ and may have attracted people to Avebury thousands of years before any construction began.
